The African School on Internet Governance (AfriSIG) 2017 has been both an eye opener and learning curve. When coming here I had no idea of the kind of impact and paradigm shift this school would have on me. The experience has over-exceeded my expectations.

What interested me the most in the process of learning was the term “Internet of Things”. This is becoming an increasingly growing topic as experienced in AfriSIG; and I have learned that it is a concept that not only has the potential to impact on how we live but also how we work.

Multistakeholderism: An alien word to a regulator 04 December 2017 Martha Kamukama

Multistakeholderism… what an alien word to a regulator! I walked into the African School on Internet Governance (AfriSIG) 2017 with this exact mindset. Working for a regulator gives you false confidence; that you call all the shots, that your decisions are final, that the operators you regulate should either tow the line or change their line of business.
